thing you can do for a case is age it, but in this case the defense is pushing for the probable cause hearing to happen while the prosecutors want to build their case. the judge allowed the prosecutors to keep the case continuing. aaron hernandez was not saying so much, but listen to what he had to say when he did have an opportunity to speak. >> this is a place that not only did it change my future from them paying me, but it changed me as a person. you can't come here and act reckless and do your own stuff. i came here acting the way i wanted to act but you get changed by the patriot way. now that i'm a patriot i'm living like one and making the right decisions for them. >> cenk: all right apparently not. now that was his comments on the patriots. i want to get back to that in a second. i want to get back to how he has deflated as you mentioned his appearance in a second. first i have a legal question for you robin. as i started to look through the evidence. we talked about this case and all the different cases that involved aaron hernan hernandez and there is evidence floating arou

been six iterations of a defense in the irs case. but remember, lois learner disclosed at a conference, that's how we learned about it. then we went into it was two rogue agents, then it went to, well, it was a progressive group so we're targeted to not just conservative groups, so as long as we treat two different sets of people improperly, at least it's not discrimination. now the new defense is, well, the president himself didn't know about it. if that's the new standard for i am -- impropriety in this town, that the president didn't even know about it? >> if they had been denied right at the get-go, then they could have appealed it to another part of the irs. instead, what was so sadistic about this and so painful, they were in this no man's land and they couldn't appeal it. they would have been far better off if the irs agents, whoever was involved in this, however high it went, if they simply said no and denied it so they could appeal it. but instead they strung them out. >> that suggested more culpability, and you're right, it's as if they just gave up. these are average america

to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.
